Damage to your tooth’s inner nerve tissue sometimes requires a root canal procedure. Despite their negative reputation, most root canals are minimally uncomfortable with the latest advancements in general dentistry, especially compared to the pain and discomfort you may be feeling before the procedure. Drs. Berdahl, Feiock and Swingdorf utilize the latest technology and dental techniques making root canal procedures more effective while taking less time.
A root canal involves removing the soft tissue within the tooth – also called the pulp – when it has become infected and inflamed. Your dentist gently removes the infected tissue out of the root canals of the tooth and fills the void with an inert material. The procedure is completed with the placement of a filling or in most cases, a crown. The crown protects the tooth and reduces the chance of future fracture.
